Hi, the Great Grandfather was a civilian, although the Grandfather got the Kriegsehrenzeichen in Eisen the Great Grandfather got the simple "kriegsehrenzeichen" Small Bronze one for service to the war effort... see here... http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/kriegsehrenzeichen-in-bronze-1916.html

Very nice!

Just one nitpick. The pinback is the Kriegerehrenzeichen in Eisen.

Ahh... sounds logical, I was wondering why they had not differentiated between it and the Kriegsehrenzeichen...
